Post fibrocystic breast disease???

Hi,

I just came from the doctor yesterday and he says I have fibrocystic breast disease. What exactly is that?? Can this breast condition later lead to cancer? (Cancer runs on my moms side of the family.)
Any insight would be great. Thanks!

Fibrocystic changes are the most common cause of breast lumps in women ages 30 to 50. Although fibrocystic changes may also be referred to as fibrocystic disease, this is not a disease, but a condition. It can be known as cystic disease, chronic cystic mastitis or mammary dysplasia. This condition is not cancerous. At least 60% of the women in their reproductive years have "lumpy" breasts as a result of these non-cancerous conditions.

Thanks for the info. As soon as I get some extra time I will have to do some research on the net. The doctor also took a urine sample and some blood work. I find out in September if they show anything to be concerned about. Thanks again!
